Beyond my wildest dreams.
Way beyond. My little "pipe dream" and "labor of love" has now been dubbed "one of the two most important show houses in the country" -- and on top of it all, we raised $86,000 for Modernism Week's 501(c)3 charity.
Modernism Week supports preservation of architecture in Palm Springs and rather quietly (until now) provides scholarships for local architecture and design students. Both causes are close to my heart.
It took a village. Talented designers. Generous sponsors. Dedicated craftsmen. Over 4000 people toured The Christopher Kennedy Compound: Modernism Week Show House in 10 days. Millions more will be inspired by it, thanks to our magazine media partners Traditional Home, California Homes, and Palm Springs Style.
My heart overflows with gratitude. Thank you! I am especially grateful to our Presenting Sponsor, Ferguson Kitchen Bath & Lighting Showrooms, and our National Media Partner, Traditional Home magazine.
The mission of The Christopher Kennedy Compound is to re-establish Palm Springs as an incubator for world-class architecture and interior design by restoring a classic mid-century property, using the best of today's technology and bringing together the nation's top design talents. We inspire the thousands of attendees who tour the home and the millions more who learn about the project through print and social media.
The mission of Modernism Week is to celebrate and foster appreciation of midcentury architecture and design, as well as contemporary thinking in these fields, by encouraging education, preservation and sustainable modern living as represented in Palm Springs.
